Not a thing at all :mellow:

I hereby graciously retire from Advanced to concentrate on securing 2nd place in Masterclass and keeping Joker on his toes.

... and levels up to Masterclass Lead!

It was one of the 1st songs that I tried in Rocksmith. It still wasn't that easy on lowest DD :lol:

Very fun to play, with many interesting techniques and many different sections.

I played those bends as slides from 9th to 7th fret. It sounds good and is possible to do :lol:, unless you have real spaghetti :D

 

While in C# you might want to try Limp Bizkit - Shotgun. It has some quite fun bass parts (on easier side).

First goes this week (but not first goes ever, obviously):

And I don't really like Rush, either.

But this one sounds like Starship, so that's okay.  :ph34r:

I honestly thought I'd got the 99, but after three goes I beat @@Fraggle Baggle, for now, so I've got to be pleased with that. 

 

Edit: The Black Sabbath won't convert for me. :(

Why am I suddenly the one everyone wants to beat?   :lol:  There are other, more accomplished players to beat!  (And apparently I only managed 2nd place advanced last week)   ;) :P *cough cough* hahaha! :D

 

Granted, I am a persistent little sod though, I'll give you that! :lol: :D  I'm still aiming for your scores @@missis sumner ;)

 

Edit: no play time today, I'm itching to play now though, but too late.

You're not.  I just think we're at a similar level.

 

And you're playing a real bass, no? ;)

 

Edit: BTW, congratulations on the title!

Funny, I see you as way better than me, which is why I aim for your scores (amongst others).  I'm flattered you think we're similar level.    :)

 

I'm playing a real bass, yes!   :laughing: LOL!  Comment of the month!

 

Oh and thanks for the congrats, I'm know I wouldn't have the title if you were still in advanced (I'd be chasing damn hard though!  :lol: )

 

Ok, love in over, back to brutal competitiveness!  :P  ;)

They are hometown heros around here, but I've never been a fan.  I admit it - I'm just not in to Rush.  Let the flaming begin. :P

 

The Spirit of Radio on bass = 98%

 

It's a busy week. but I'll still try to eke out a 99% on it.

Since we had working man - Rush has made it to my regular playlist.. both RS and spotify. I love that straight forward guitar and basswork a lot. And for the voice - hey after seeing an Anthrax show with Joey Belladonna up front every other lead singer is somehow ok... i guess :) and in Rush it fits quite well for my ears.

@@Rodman What do you have against Belladonna? Everyone has a right to age, you ungrateful roadie.

Yay that Rush thing is bringing up some emotions - i love it!

 

@@Mortalo - i fear its neither an issue of age, nor of gratefulness ;)

In Person i think Joey, (as well as Scott Ian) is really cool, and i have seen quite a lot of interview footage. Just i never really got hooked on Anthrax because of the screaming.

 

 

Edit:

You might be not totally wrong - it is a bit an issue of age - that doesn´t even sound that bad

@@Rodman You find Geddy Lee's basslines straight forward? THAT's a new one. I was under the impression they were more complex than most basslines out there :P So fun to play though ^^

:wacko: My drop tuning bass was going out of tune, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.  I like it, so no doubt I'll give it another go during the week.

 

And onto the Rush.  I really like this song.  (I still don't like Rush, mind  :P)

 

Needless to say I was very pleased with reaching my goal for the week:

Don't rest too easy @@Rodman :P  I'm chasing! :D

Didn't miss EVERY bend this time, so that's a start! 

 

 

I knew you'd improve your score @@missis sumner, but for a brief time (before I saw your post) I'd caught you! :lol:

@@Fraggle Baggle, I'd just like to point out that if you get 99.5% on a song rated 7, you qualify for MC.  :D

 

Oh I know! :D

 

Not gonna lie, I would enjoy advanced more and I'm not ready for MC yet...I think almost all the MC tracks I've attempted have been at advanced level difficulty, not MC.  But IF I get 99.5 so be it.   :)

Let's play the hard ones!

I love Rush, Geddy Lee and all. Haven't played this in a while, but it's nice to come back to. Probably the first play I've ever felt like I can do the hook justice!

 

Alright, time to climb down to Drop B and get our ass kicked! Whee! :godmode:

Did a blind sightread on it because I lack common sense. :finnadie: This song does NOT LET UP.  It's just a constant barrage of intricate melodies. Pretty killer tune!

 

My metal buddy got me into August Burns Red in high school. I've listened up to Constellations, but this one's new for me. Should listen to this album...

Knowing what I was getting myself into didn't help much!
